The monastery of Mor Gabriel in southeastern Turkey is the oldest surviving monastery of the Syrian Orthodox Tradition, and thus has a great deal of history. In the present volume, Mor Philoxenos Yuhanon Dolabani takes up the task of summarizing this rich history. Dolabani begins with the foundation of the monastery at the end of the fourth century and succinctly covers the major events and people who have shaped the history of Mor Gabriel throughout the centuries. The present volume is the second edition of the work originally published in 1959.
